We had a pt recently that was receiving 135 units of Lantus qHS. Is there a maximum amount of Lantus that anyone knows of? The pt was obese (@ 300lb), was still running high BGs (200's) and stated that his DM II is always out of control. Any thoughts, ideas, etc.? This person just got my brain to running and in spite of all the info on here I haven't come across a max dose for Lantus.
I had a patient that took 175 units qHS. Pharmacy sent it up in a 3ml syringe that we attached a subq needle to. If their blood sugars are still high, it's not too much.
